Nick Colionne - Festival Host

The 12th Annual Seabreeze Jazz Festival will be held April 16th-18th at the Pier Park Amphitheater in Panama City Beach, Florida. Pier Park became the new home for the ResortQuest Seabreeze Jazz Festival last year and the response from attendees was overwhelming positive. Pier Park is Northwest Florida’s largest shopping, dining, and entertainment venue and a perfect fit for a festival of this size. The Jazz Festival offers attendees the opportunity to combine a weekend of cool jazz with a great beach vacation getaway.

ResortQuest has hundreds of Gulf-front vacation rentals in Panama City Beach including such popular resorts as Tidewater Beach Resort, Palazzo Beach Resort and Sunrise Beach Condos which are all located less than a mile and a half from Pier Park.
